SUSSEX, NEW BRUNSWICK – Canadian telco Bell Aliant continues its FTTH rollout by investing $2 million to expand FibreOP services to 3,000 homes and businesses in Sussex, New Brunswick.

“Access to the FibreOP network represents a tremendous growth opportunity for Sussex and has huge potential to connect businesses and families,” says Andre LeBlanc, VP Residential Product, Bell Aliant. “We are excited to continue our expansion in New Brunswick, and to offer the best TV and Internet to our customers in the Sussex area.”

FibreOP Internet offers Internet access with speeds up to 250 Mbps download and 30 Mbps upload – and no data caps, unlike most Canadian (and now many U.S.) services.

Bell Aliant was the first company in Canada to cover an entire city with fiber to the home, and by the end of 2012, it will have invested approximately half a billion dollars to extend FTTH to approximately 650,000 homes and businesses in its territory. In addition to New Brunswick, FibreOP is available in parts of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador.
